Are we all online?

One of me in SL

This is "me"

Hi All, I hope you all took a look at our “Calling all lecturers”. Of course there is stuff there that would interest students, especially education students, but it is mainly for lecturers in the same manner as the ILS Facebook wall is mainly for Students. We now have eight pages of interesting things to read about, comment on and do so there should be something there to interest you. If there isn’t let us know what you would like to here more about.

I’m always interest in what the Beyond Distance Learning Alliance at Leicester University are doing. Professor Gilly Salmon was the first person I met from Leicester, she had just published her book on e-tivities and was running some workshops on it – from that small beginning Carpe Diem developed; you can download their Carpe-Diem-Guide-June2011-final here under CC Licence. On the Research to Practice, Innovation to Mainstream page do go and look at the videos at the bottom, especially the “SWIFT: Completed virtual genetics lab” and the “Relating Research to Practice” video.

Are you into OER (Open Educational Resources)? Here are a couple of things you might like to try. First a little test for your department or institute. The web2rights site is excellent, I’ve mentioned it before and I’m certain it will come up again as will the OER InfoKit. This particular publication for the InfoKit is especially for managers – go on, have a go at using this 🙂

I came through a tortuous path to the role of Adviser in Digital Literacy in the Information and Learning Services Department. In the past I was a: Senior Lecturer in Health Informatics, Senior Lectuer in Midwifery, Midwifery Sister, Staff Midwife, Nurse, Secretary, Bars Manager. I would have liked to be a jeweller and silver smith but of course there is always retirement for that :)
